Arsenal Close in as $27.7m Star will Accept Move to Emirates

Arsenal Ramsey WengerArsenal might not sign a striker yet again but they may add another attacking playmaker to the squad. Typical Wenger perhaps.

Gunners do not need any other attacking player than a goal-scoring forward in this summer transfer window.

However, if rumours are anything to go by then they are closing in on Napoli star Jose Callejon.

The 28 year old right winger has been a key player for Napoli under the management of Rafael Benitez who signed him from Real Madrid.

Now that the former Liverpool manager has taken the hot seat at the Bernabeu, Callejon is likely to leave as well.

According to reports, Arsenal are set to begin talks with the Serie A side to lure Spanish international Jose Callejon for $27.7m as the star is ready to accept move to the Emirates.

The former Los Blancos star featured in 59 games for the Italian side last season, scored 12 goals and also provided 7 assists.

Callejon has got quality to be a hit with Arsenal but the Gunners already have world class attackers in Ozil, Cazorla and specifically Alexis Sanchez who plays in Callejon’s preferred position.

Arsenal fans will be hugely disappointed if they see Giroud in the starting XI week in week out and not a new world class striker.

    Let me tell you, and mark my words. Wenger will not pay that kind of money for a 27 year old, you sports reporters should know Wenger by now, he has been with Arsenal for 18 years now and you cannot make a research to see and know what Arsene Wenger does his things. Wenger will never buy a 27 year old for that kind of money, this I want to assure you. Trace his record for the past years and see if Wenger buy a 27 year old if he is not a free agent or loan and pay such huge money. He can only buy from 26 going down maybe to under 16. He is a good planner and he uses his REASONING CAPCITY for the success of Arsenal Football Club in terms of finance. Who the other coach does that? They only want big money for the success of the club and spend it on buying players, they do not bring young boys from the junior team but they continue to buy, as a result the policy of juniors is just a formality, not being implemented, on the business point of view.
